Guangzhou Pumped Storage Power Station

Guangzhou pumped-storage power station

Guangzhou pumped storage power station (GPSPS) is currently the largest pumped storage power station around the world. It has 2400MW installed capacity, which includes 8 reversible pumped storage units, whose gross head is 535 m. The station is built in 2 stages. During Stage 1 (1989.5-1994.3) it built in 4*300MW's reversible units which were imported from France, and in Stage 2 (1994.9-2000.6) it built in 4*300MW's reversible units which were imported from Germany. The project complex is made up of upper and lower reservoir, waterway system, underground power house and T&D works. The upper dam is CFRD with a height of 68m,crest length of 318.52m and width of 7m. The side channel spillway is laid on the left bank. The catchment area of the upper reservoir is 5.2km2. Its water level/storage at FSL is 816.8m/24.08 million m3, and dead water level/storage is 797m/23.40 million m3. The lower dam is RCC gravity dam, and the inner part of dam is with rolled RC and the surface is with 1.5 m thick of normal RC. There is a gallery through the upstream belly part of lower dam which connects the left and right banks. The lower dam is with the height of 43.5m, the crest length of 153.12m and the width of 7m. The crest spillway is laid on the middle of the dam. The catchment area of the lower reservoir is 13.2km2. Its water level/storage at FSL is 287.4m/23.42 million m3, and dead water level/storage is 275m/629 million m3.
